As Twitchy reported Monday, Bernie Sanders, fresh off of a three-state sweep of Alaska, Hawaii, and Washington — all won by huge margins — decided he’d like to squeeze in one more debate before the New York primary. The Clinton camp responded with a big, fat “no” to any further debates, with the condition that Sanders change his tone.
You see, even though Sanders has staunchly refused to bring the FBI’s investigation of Clinton into play, he’s apparently run a negative ad against his opponent — something Clinton campaign strategist Joel Benenson whined that Sanders promised he’d never do.
For the benefit of those Twitchy readers who aren’t big followers of EDM or crunk, “Turn Down for What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon was a huge hit single in 2013. It was obviously the inspiration for Michelle Obama’s bizarre “Turnip for What” video, and has now morphed into the #ToneDownForWhat hashtag.
Peasants of America,
Keep thy tone down. You sound like common Brooklynites.

The only one who should be changing their tone is the candidate that is tone deaf to voters. Debates are good for democracy #ToneDownForWhat

The only thing a strong woman candidate should say about debates is "Bring it." #ToneDownForWhat

If you didn't want anyone bringing up your record maybe you should have made a better record. #ToneDownForWhat
